Yuma Student Anglers State Tournament Held in Yuma!

Yuma Student Anglers host the 2021 Arizona High School Bass Fishing Finals!

Yuma Student Anglers (YSA) was proud to host the 2021 AZ State High School Bass Fishing Finals on Sat. March 27th at Mittry Lake. We had 8 teams competing for awards, fishing tackle, scholarships, and the right to advance to national/world finals in South Carolina as well as district semi finals in Lake Havasu City in October. As has happened for the two previous years, one of the two teams from Havasu came down and prevailed again.
Zachary and Brandon Verbrugge took first with 12.54# But, teams from Yuma that found biting fish were close. 2nd place went to Jentry and Jerryn Goforth with 10.05# and 3rd place went to Adam Straub and Logan Bathrick with 9.64#. Yuma prevailed in the big fish category with a 3.99# lmb boated by Wyatt Mellon. It was a tuff fishing day, but a fun day overall with food served by our friends at Crossroads Mission. This event could not have happened without the many local individuals and businesses who have sponsored us over the last eight plus years.
